We strongly suggest staying away from the very inexpensive (under $100) or “mini” projectors that seem to be popping up everywhere. The reason for this being that most cheap projectors lack the brightness (measured in lumens) needed to display a good picture in anything brighter than complete darkness. Remember, the brighter you want your simulator bay the stronger you need your projector to be. After all, no one wants to swing in the dark!
If you are using a projector, then you will need an impact screen. The price can vary anywhere between $250 to well over $1000, depending on the quality and design. Here is an excellent option if you are on a budget. Depending on the room you are using, you also should consider putting netting around the perimeter of the impact screen for any errant shots.
As well as being able to offer winter golf practice and performance programs for teams and individuals, the TrackMan simulator golf solution also lets you put any extra floor space to good use. TrackMan Performance Studio software is developed using exclusive insights from the world’s leading players and teaching professionals. Features include TrackMan Optimizer, Normalizer, Combine and Test Center.
At the midpoint price level is Golfzon’s Vision Standard. Don’t let the name fool you—it’s far from a Spartan offering. The system’s sensors capture your swing, impact and spin, not only displaying your ball flight but recording key data points, which are stored via the cloud on various electronic devices. With 180 elegant courses and dozens of practice arcade games, boredom will not be an issue.
